  • No you aren't responcible anymore. I'm dealing with this with my 19 year old daughter and her boyfriend. They are wanting me to be responcible for choices they have made and I'm having none of it. Although sometimes it's hard to walk away when you see they have nothing but I just have to realize that she made the choices. She must live with them and my jumping in to save her will not save her at all.

  • an 18 year old is legally an adult and does not need permission to move and they are not responsible for the child.

  • Nope. Just don't let him move back in unless you're ready to legally serve him notice when you want him to leave and he won't.

  • what age is considered legally an adult there? here in CA its 18... if they are older than the legal limit, then no, your not responsible. but if they are younger than the legal limit, then you ARE responsible.

  • At 18 you can't even get medical information or sign for treatment. You can't get legal information, school records, or anything an adult is responsible for. Your child is considered an adult even though the child may not always act like one. If your child has done something and people are turning to you to resovle it, tell them to take a hike. You are not responsible. They are not even suppose to talk to you about banking, loans, or any business matters. It violates the federal Privacy Act.

  • No and they don't need your permission to move out either lol. At 18, an individual is a legal adult.
